Transcript of "CayugaSoft Intro"

  1. 1. June 15, 2012
  2. 2. Cayuga Software DevelopmentWe‟re a US-based software developmentcompany with offshore softwaredevelopment resources in Ukraine
  3. 3. What do we do? We create Offshore Development Teams (ODTs) for our clients that act as extensions of our clients‟ onshore software development operations. This enables our ODTs to focus on learning our clients‟ systems, their businesses, and their development processes in order to become high-performing, cost-effective contributors for our clients over the long run
  4. 4. Founders Mike Sadowski – CEO – CIO/CTO at Odyssey Logistics & Technology, venture-backed logistics services and technology company (took it from zero to $80M in revenues). Led creation of proprietary web-based system used on a global basis. Offshore team included 50 people in Ukraine. – VP of Product Management at RELY Software, a venture-backed supply-chain software company – 12 years of experience managing and creating offshore development teams – Principal at PRTM Management Consultants (acquired by PwC) – BASc Electrical Engineering (University of Toronto), Master of Engineering in Operations Research (Cornell), MBA (Cornell) Eugene Polyansky – COO – CEO of eGo Creative Solutions, a Ukraine-based software development company. Responsibilities: project management, team management, and company management – 15 years of experience in web-based software development – Additionally, strong expertise the Graphic Design industry, including printed advertisements, web-development, commercial TV spots, 3D modeling and animation – BS and MS in Computer Information Systems from Donetsk National Technical University, Ukraine
  5. 5. Why we are different Our founders‟ unique experience in offshore IT, with a focus on: – Successfully achieving long-term advantage using offshore resources with dedicated development teams, QA teams, and support teams – Experience in getting Agile processes to really work, using a mix of onshore and offshore staffing – Years of experience in Ukraine, arguably the best location to find deep technical expertise, at a reasonable cost, with a motivated, low-turnover workforce
  6. 6. Services Dedicated Offshore Development Center (ODC) QA Outsourcing Production Support
  7. 7. Typical Problems with Offshore Development A lot of onshore teams have difficulty accepting offshore teams – “You guys just want to offshore my job.” – “It‟ll never work. My old company outsourced to India and it was a disaster. We threw all their work away.” – “How is an offshore developer ever going to understand what needs to be done? They are too far away from „the business‟.” Sometimes the opposition is passive (don‟t give the offshore teams anything to do, or set them up to fail), sometimes it‟s aggressive
  8. 8. The reality is different: Not enough talent in the US There‟s a chronic shortage of talent in the US (150,000 open software development positions nationwide) Especially difficult to find talent in some markets Not enough talent in certain specialties (e.g., mobile) The only realistic, cost-effective solution is to create mixed teams of onshore and offshore resources
  9. 9. Agile Jump Start Cayuga helps you build a cooperative environment where both onshore and offshore teams work together When you start up your dedicated offshore team, we have the experience to: – Work out a functioning development/QA/Support process with your onshore/offshore team – Explain how Agile best-practices can be used with offshore teams – Resolve start-up issues that prevent success
  10. 10. Expertise Mobile Development Web Development – Business Applications – Content Management Systems – Web portals – E-commerce Systems Social Media Web Design and Creative Work

  12. 12. Software Development in Ukraine Ukraine – Independent country that emerged from former Soviet Union in 1991 – Emerging democracy with a pro-Western foreign policy – Population of about 46 million people who are well-educated, with a literacy rate of 99.7% (as compared with 99.0% in the USA) Ukraine‟s Software development expertise: – Long tradition of Soviet technical excellence in math and physical sciences – Largest number of software developers in Central and Eastern Europe – Educates more new software developers each year than any other country in C&EE.Large population, good education system, tradition oftechnical expertise, and the relatively low demand forIT resources in the internal Ukrainian economy (ascompared with Western countries) means that a deeppool of skilled resources is available for our clients
